Portland Family PHotographer

Lifestyle Maternity & Family Photography

Capturing real & beautiful moments for your family to treasure for generations.

Artful and honest photography with your unique personalities in mind.

Thoughtful . candid . Intimate . Artistic . Emotional . Inspired . Nostalgic

Our memories live on in our minds, stories and photos. Your children or the generations beyond will see your photos as heirlooms and feel the energy you were creating in your life.


For those living a childfree existence, our pets are our children. These magical beings take us into their hearts and we become their entire world. Our fur families are only with us for a short time and these relationships are just as valuable and worthy of documentation.


Whomever you call family, let's capture these fleeting moments and turn them into tangible memories.

The Experience


The Beginning

Once you reach out, we’ll chat so I can get to know your family's story and recommend the collection that best suits your needs. If we click, we'll book your session with a contract & retainer. We'll schedule a call to fully plan out your session and I'll provide you with location ideas, wardrobe tips, ideas for activities, and general guidelines to help your session flow so you can relax and enjoy the process.


Your Session

Today's the day! I'll provide prompts to help you find comfort with the camera, but mostly I'll just hang out and let the magic happen. I take a storytelling approach with guidance where needed.

The Reveal

About a week after your session I'll reach out to schedule your reveal session. We'll watch a slideshow with all of your beautiful photographs, a sample keepsake album, and some wall art examples. I'll help you choose your favorite photographs and then we'll design your artwork together. We get nostalgic and you get to relive this moment again and again with photographs you'll cherish forever.

Kind Words

"She listens with intent and truly cares about you"

"From my first exchange with Briana, I just knew it was the right match and would be such a fun experience! She is incredibly warm, kind, understanding and genuinely interested in capturing your story the way you want it told. She listens with intent and truly cares about you. She was patient with all my questions and nervousness, and I felt like I was always talking to a friend. Yet, she maintains a high level of professionalism every step of the way.

The photo shoot itself was a blast! I took all of Briana’s advice about attire, makeup, etc., and am so glad I did! The two hours flew by and we got the most incredible photographs! Briana is very talented and the moments she captured will be cherished forever!

There are not enough amazing things we can say about Briana, but one last thing to note - we already have, and will continue to, recommend her to anyone we know. You will not regret working with her for one minute! She takes care of her clients and is invested in you."

Challenges you might be facing

Family photos feel too cheesy for you.

We want to capture your kids and/or pets in their natural state of freedom and fun.


I encourage candid, organic photos that reflect the honest personalities of your family.


I’ll help you stay away from overly matchy clothes and awkwardly posed photos, so these images will be cherished and proudly displayed.

You want great family photos but feel overwhelmed by the entire process.

I will be your co-conspirator to help you find the right location(s), fun ideas for props, creative activities, and provide tips for natural outfits.


I’ll take these details off your plate so you can show up and be present with your family, trusting that you’ll receive beautiful, creative, and honest images.

Your kids are "too old" for family photos.

Capturing your kids at any age is incredibly validating for them. It proves to them that, in any stage of life, they are loved, respected, and seen.


Even if your kids feign disinterest in family photos, they will appreciate you later for allowing them to be themselves, dress the way they want, and (most importantly) know that they are a valued part of the family.


Family photos are not just for people with little ones. They are for any season of life.

Your kids are rowdy and you're afraid you won't get the perfect portraits you want.

These family portraits are not about trying to capture an idea of perfection. They are about capturing the true story of your family, just as they are, in this moment in time.


Before our session, I’ll get to know your family and their individual personalities. On the day of your session we can get playful to help everyone feel comfortable, free, and expressive. If we need snack time, a diaper change, to slow down or play games, that is all apart of your reality.


I hope to capture honest moments in your life, even if your kids or pets are being silly, dirty, or restless.
